A belt that self-adjusts to your waistline

January 09, 2015

LAS VEGAS -- Sometimes, a belt gets in the way. It becomes too tight when we sit down in our carts and when we bend down to grab the ball from the hole, and it gets too loose when we reach up into trees as we feebly hope to find our balls. That's where Emiota's Belty might help. [#image: /photos/55ad7b7cb01eefe207f704cf]|||emiota-belty-518.jpg|||

It's a pretty terrible-looking belt, but it is, without a doubt, among the most intriguing pieces of wearable technology to come out of CES. The belt has built-in motors that automatically loosen and tighten as you sit down or stand up. It also wirelessly syncs to an app that monitors your waistline and the number of steps you take throughout the day, essentially shaming you to KEEP MOVING.

It's expected to launch at the end of the year, and its price hasn't yet been announced.
